Two-way player hopes to continue double deployment
This kid has all the tools you would want from a MS WR/CB coming into the HS program. He has length, good burst, good back-end speed, really good hands, and the vertical explosion to climb the ladder and high-point footballs either on offense or defense.Fletcher Long, Chief of the Scouting Division, KPGFootball
We don’t know a thing about Christopher Reed, Sr. For all we know he was the greatest athlete Versailles, Kentucky has ever known.
We are impressed with Christopher Reed, Jr. If he continues to work and develop along his present arc, the Yellow Jackets could have themselves a potent, dual-threat, both sides of the football weapon.
Reed has plenty of length on his frame. He is 5’10” with long arms and legs and a frame which looks like it has plenty of development left. At 130-pounds, this player is rail thin and will want to get in the weight room, this offseason, and pack some bulk on his frame.
Reed hasn’t hurt for confidence. “I am a dual threat player, I can make big plays on offense and defense,” Reed has posted on his Twitter page.
From what we have seen of his highlights, we would have to agree with him. Reed is fast when he gets going. We would like to see him “twitchier” or quicker off the line and out of his breaks.
Reed looks to have fluid hips and he appears limber. He should really attempt to keep that limber-thing as he adds muscle in the offseason strength program.
Reed is a former 2X Kentucky Future Star. Having played two years of Future Stars, one knows he is among the very best at where he is most commonly deployed.
Future Stars tend to see the field early and often. This is true even where that Future Star is joining a roster which is coming off an 11-2, ’22 campaign with many key pieces returning.
We like this prospect very much and believe he will have a big year for the Yellow Jackets. How quickly he sees the field? Well, that’s kind of on him.
